MLB Rumors

Red Sox shuffle rotation for final week
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst reports that Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa have been removed from the Red Sox's rotation for the final week of the season. Clay Buchholz, Anthony Ranaudo and Allen Webster are set to make starts against the Rays, and then Joe Kelly and Buchholz will start the last two games of the team's season-ending series against the Yankees.

Friday's starter in the series opener against the Yankees is still to be named, but Steven Wright is a candidate to get the nod. Wright has posted a 3.38 ERA in five relief appearances this season.

Pagan missed Saturday's game -- his fourth absence over the last five games -- with a back injury, and he was out of the starting lineup again for Sunday's game at the Padres. Morse was out for Saturday and Sunday as well, as he hurt his oblique in Friday's game. That was Morse's only appearance since Aug. 31, as an oblique injury had kept him out all month.
